What's with all this need for third party programs to download files? Just right-click on the filename and save it to your hard drive. It doesn't get any easier than that.

Bruin, it's the need to resume that's the issue. A browser download is easy to do, but if you're in the middle of downloading a 4-gig file, and you have to turn off the computer for a while, a browser won't let you pick up where you left off. FTP clients and download managers will let you do that, if the server supports resuming.

A browser like Opera which has a built-in download manager can be used if one needs to resume. I personally find FileZilla better suited for download, though.
